Drink and smoke during a course of anabolic steroids

I am regularly asked on the chat or during a call if we can continue to to smoke or even from to drink alcohol during a anabolic steroid treatments. So let's dig deeper into this topic together.

It goes without saying that alcohol or tobacco, consumed outside of a steroid cure, are already harmful to your body.

You are well aware that steroids also have unpleasant and annoying effectss if you are not careful during your cure. So I'm not going to go over the details of these effects here, so let's tackle the influence of tobacco and alcohol on your body directly.


First of all you should know that alcohol is mainly eliminated by the liver. Up to about 10% of alcohol can be eliminated through the lungs, kidneys and skin.

Elimination by the liver leads to an accumulation of fatty acids in it.

Alcohol contains 7.1 kilocalories per gram. They promote weight gain but are considered empty calories because they contain only very small amounts of nutrients.

Liqueurs and dessert wines therefore contain significantly more carbohydrates than wine or beer. When we drink alcohol while eating, the body begins by eliminating the alcohol.

The formation of fatty deposits is reinforced. Consuming alcohol therefore increases the risk of getting fat. Alcohol changes the sleep cycle. The phases of REM sleep are shortened and those of deep sleep are lengthened. Acts on basic physiological functions such as body temperature regulation and breathing.

So when we know how much you have to prevent your body and protect all these aspects during a steroid cure, it would be a shame if you sacked all your efforts.



In addition to the risks of cancer, we can add that of heart attack, stroke and cancer compared to non-smokers. In addition, occasional tobacco consumption can induce a significant drop in erection in men.

Tobacco linked to estrogen levels thus substantially increases the risk of cardiovascular accidents.

Tobacco acts negatively on your blood supply.

In addition, the combination of tobacco and alcohol increases the risk of developing certain cancers. If it is advised not to consume alcohol and tobacco during everyday life; it is all the more so during a steroid cure. We only have one health. It is better to preserve it.

However, I would end with a little tip:

There are events that cannot be avoided and where the temptation to have a drink is very great (wedding, birthday or other…). Many bodybuilders therefore "prepare" their liver in advance by taking samarin140 the week preceding the event and the following week.

Consume in moderation!

      There is no specific duration to protect yourself from drinking after a cure. If you do not abstain, it is better to take very moderately.
      Be aware that in addition to its harmful effects on the body, it also blocks protein synthesis. Exposure of muscle cells to alcohol often results in the ability of insulin to
      stimulate protein synthesis.

    Drinking and smoking have become part of French customs. As if the fact of not drinking or not smoking is a handicapping factor for society. For some it is inconceivable not to drink during a party, a party is not one without the lot of alcohol that goes with it.
    Alcohol and tobacco should be desacralized. They are not useful and have no place in sports.

        Hello Sir,

        It will depend on the products you take, if you cycle with oral products of the 17 alpha alkylated type which can potentially damage the liver I strongly advise against it. But if you use injectables, you can swerve.

        Good for you

    I don't smoke, but I drink, I can say I do it in moderation and I hardly ever get drunk. I drink, let's say it, once, maybe twice a month. I have a beer or two with friends or family. Always the day I don't train. I am in good shape without giving up my social life.
    I would say the key is moderation.
    As for cigarettes, I can't really comment.

    Every year there are 10,000,000 deaths from tobacco and alcohol. So alcohol and tobacco are dangerous whether you're on steroids or not.

    Necesito su consejo si seria posible combinar mi hobby con el deporte? Al navegar por Internet, he heard by mi que la nicotina sin alquitrán no es tan peligroso para nuestro organismo (está claro que es nada bueno, pero y el daño es mínimo). Tal vez no deberia privarme de tal cosa? Puedo fumar cigarrillos electrónicos, mientras que consumo ThePharma? ¿Tuvo alguien tal tipo de experiencia?

    Drinking is not going to kill us if we know how to do it…. I'm not going to put my life on hold because of a cycle, doing things in moderation is key.
    Drinking your fill of beer or whiskey 4-5 times a week is definitely bad whether you're on steroids or not.
    But a drink or two at the end of the week with friends to unwind isn't going to hurt us.

    Drinking and smoking are certainly bad for the health of anyone, athlete or not, taking steroids or not.
    But it's completely tolerable and understandable for someone (who lives in France) that he occasionally strays from drink or tobacco. Moderation should be the key word.

    Good to know, but I don't think a little red ball once in a while wouldn't hurt anyone.
